Technically I am 36 weeks, but we are scheduled for c-section in three weeks, so I am going by that. I am really excited, but I am starting to have some anxiety. It seemed so long away and now it is so soon, I don't feel like I am ready, but who ever is. Luckily most of my Christmas shopping is done, and we already have the baby things, so hopefully she stays on schedule and doesn't come any sooner. I love how excited Braxton is for her to come and Bailey says she is, but she has no idea what is happening. We are excited for her to come to our family, just not so excited for recovery, but I have done this two times so it should get easier, right?

Monday night we went to the park downtown to see Santa ride in on a fire truck and watch them light the Christmas tree. Bailey and Braxton were excited to see Santa ride in on the fire truck, but when Bailey gets close to Santa she is a scaredy. Braxton of course has never been scared of Santa. Santa talked to Bailey while I held her and asked if she wanted a dolly, she said yes, then Santa picked up Braxton and asked him what he wanted, and talked to him for a while, it was so nice we didn't have to wait in a long line to sit on Santa's lap and Braxton was able to tell him what he wanted. So begins our Christmas Festivities and so many more to come in the coming weeks.
The day after Thanksgiving it was shopping and putting up the Christmas decorations. We got a new tree this year because our tree of ten years finally broke last year. I finally got a prelit tree and it was so much nicer putting it up this year. I also made an advent calendar for Braxton, he is so excited to start doing it, and I am excited to do all the Christmas festivities with him.
Pretty soon my Bailey will not be my baby anymore. I am a little nervous with how she will handle having a new baby. She is such my sweetheart and I love getting to spend one on one time with her while brother is at school and daddy is at work. She is getting so big, she has been sleeping in a big girl bed for over a month now and she has done so well. She also doesn't have a bottle at all now. I can't believe how grown up she is becoming. She is so good at throwing garbage away and cleaning up after herself, she even cleans up after her brother. She says the cutest things, when she gets exciting about something, she says " I ike it", and she loves her cousins "ky ky", "illum" (William), and of course "Sadie". Her favorite song is "Tonight, Tonight" by Hot Chelle Rae. She sings "Tonight" in a high pitch voice and she loves dancing to it. I just love this little girl, and I know she will be such a good sister.
My Mom always says I was the girl with a curl, when I was good I was very good and when I was bad I was BAD. One of her favorite stories to tell is when I got into the desitin at my Grandma's house and got it all over. So the other day this is what I found Bailey with the desitin, luckily she didn't get it all over.
